New Paper -- Vehicle Electrification: Analysis of Current Challenges

The electrification of automobiles, trucks, and busses – once considered a technology related primarily to the manufacturing and assembly of batteries – now affects nearly every aspect of today’s vehicles. As the demand for vehicle electrification rapidly increases, manufacturing engineers face an array of engineering challenges. To help manufacturers deploy new concepts more efficiently, EWI...

New paper -- Development of Brazing Alloy for SiC Brazing

Silicon carbide is an important structural ceramic material owing to its excellent thermal and environmental stability, resistance to radiation, resistance to thermal shock, and high strength and ceramic toughness. For these reasons, silicon carbide components are well-suited for advanced nuclear fuels and other high-temperature service programs. Finding a satisfactory solution to SiC-to-SiC joining, however, has...

Every Day is NUMISHEET at EWI

By Tom Feister Thirteen years ago, I landed my first job out of school at a company that developed software for sheet metal forming simulations.  I did not know anything about sheet metal forming or finite element analysis (FEA) simulation. To get up to speed, I would read through publications from NUMISHEET conferences.  It was...

Microstructural Evolution in IN718 Produced by L-PBF Additive Manufacturing -- new paper

The additive manufacturing (AM) process laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) is applied frequently to build complex, shaped parts. The process uses a laser beam to melt metallic powders which are then deposited layer by layer. As the range of metals and alloys for L-PBF continues to expand, the characteristics of these new materials need to...
